    It is well worth getting up early in the park ....... later it will be really busy, especially on nice days!

    The creek Plitvica is 4km long and is one of the permanent watercourses of the National Park. It rises to 640m in the Preka Kosa area as the third largest karst spring within the Plitvice Lakes and never dries up. The stream Plitvica takes, after independent watercourse of 1.5 km, the water from the brook Sartuk, which arises by connecting several small sources. At the place "Hajdukovića mlin" the stream Plitvica flows from the area of poorly drained dolomites into the area with well drained limestones. This transition of the geological base also influences some water losses in the stream. This limestone deposits, which are very intense in the bed of the creek Plitvica help.

    Flowing through the village of Plitvice, the stream reaches the Canyon of the Lower Lakes and plunges over the limestone rock, which is 78m high, and forms the Great Waterfall. This is the highest waterfall in Republic of Croatia.

    You should be there early. As early as possible.
    Unfortunately, the natural spectacle is already so quickly overrun that you have more people than a waterfall. Otherwise, it is a really nice place to enjoy.
